360 not encoding MKV

Postby forcefullpower » Tue Aug 04, 2009 11:32 am

Hi All,

I seem to see that some people are able to transcode .mkv files to the 360. Every-time i try to play these files i get an error on the 360 saying unable to play content. I have not had any issues with any other files that i am trying to play.

All the content i have works fine with the PS3 from streaming to transcoding. Is there a step that i am missing on getting it to transcode mkv to the 360.
TVersity used to transcode to the 360 without any issues but that also does not work when i tested this time(have not used in a while). Also TVersity upscales the image on the 360 but the PS3M does not on the 360 but does on the PS3.

I found the debugging file. looks like this is the error "[Thread-23] DEBUG 12:34:59.529 Couldn't open codec wmav2, br=256." Any help would be grateful.

AviSynth/mencoder engine on the xbox is not supported at the moment, try the default mencoder engine
